South suburban pride: Buck of the Week: Unplugged

SHARE South suburban pride: Buck of the Week: Unplugged

Jim Kidd wanted the bucks of Crete represented for Buck of the Week: Unplugged. And this one did just fine.


“Buck unplugged Oak Forest has nothing on Crete,” he e-mailed.

I think that came after the second or third time I opined that Oak Forest would get my vote for having the biggest bucks around Chicago.

BOTW: Unplugged is a weekly celebration of live big bucks around Chicago outdoors. It runs Sundays in the outdoors page of the Sun-Times. An extended online version is usually posted here Saturday or Sunday.

I thought this would fizzle out by now, being in the heart of winter, but good niminations keep coming.
